Thursday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question, "Where are you if you're at 0 degrees latitude and 0 degrees longitude?", is:
In the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Africa.

Today's question is:
In the book The King's Speech, there are several pictures of cards and notes signed by King George VI of England, and they're signed 'George R I'. What does R I stand for?

Rex Imperator, King Emperor. The last man to hold that title.

R I - isn't that George's title? "Regis Imperium" or something like that? My grandfather taught Latin - he's probably screaming at me from heaven right now :)
